More Bread, this time rolls...

I did another batch of bread last night, really just playing with different presentation styles. It was another walnut and stilton batch, this time simply adding the flavours into the dough after the second prove.

I had planned on making bread rolls, however they came out slightly larger than I was expecting. I was also trying to make "interesting shapes"by doing a sort of twisted plait, however the softness of the dough meant that they smoothed out a fair bit.

I think next time I'll split the batch into 12 or 16 (rather than 8), and maybe do cuts rather than plaits.

I've decided I really like the look of poppy seeds on bread, and these also had an egg wash before they were baked, to give a more golden colour to the crust.
